Default SEO Forum - LINK WHEELS: Which 10 Web2.0 Properties Should I Use To Make An Effective Link Wheel??

Hi All,

Over the last few days, I have read a few threads regarding the creation and use of "link wheels". Basically, link wheels are a grouping of Web2.0 pages (ie. Squidoo, Hubpages, Blogger, etc) linking to your main site/blog with the intend of giving it more backlinks (and therefore do better in the SERPS).

I would like to build a link wheel to help promote my latest blog.

Which ten web2.0 platforms should I use for my link wheel? This is going to take some time and effort, and I'd like to make sure that the results will be worth.

A secondary question would be on how best to interlink the web2.0 properties to my blog. ANy advice on that would be great too!

Thanks guys!

KateD

Which ten web2.0 platforms should I use for my link wheel? I mean, which ten SHOULD I use? This is going to take some time and effort, and I'd like to make sure that the results will be worth.

I've only used Squidoo, Hubpages, and another site I can't think of the name right now... 5 Squid Lenses, 5 Hubpages, and a page from whatever that site was. I did this about 2 months ago and I didn't think it was working, but yesterday actually I took a look at 2 terms I was trying to rank for and wham... I'm on the #2 spot for both terms.

These aren't highly searched terms though... They have a low search volume but the keywords themselves are what I call "Buyer Keywords." They're keywords that a buyer is more likely to type in.

So... This strategy at least worked with Squidoo, Hubpages, and some other random Web 2.0 property.

BTW, I also blasted 11 articles that linked to the Web 2.0 sites AND bookmarked both the articles and Web 2.0 pages. Apparently that's what Google likes right now...

I try to have at least two of the bigger ones (HubPages, Squidoo, Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr) then I fill in the rest with random properties. I have a big list of 2.0 properties for those who need them.

Hi Kate!

The ones I use are Blogsome, Xanga, Slideshare, tumblr, livejournal, wordpress.com, wetpaint, blogger, scribd and vox. These are the best for me, especially scribed and slideshare are Google's favorites right now (from what I have experienced from building the linkwheels).

Currently I use this "linkwheel" (it's not a typical linkwheel), but it has proven to work great for me:

Ursa,

That's a pretty impressive link wheel.

Just two questions:

1. how long did it take you to create?
2. how much traffic is your main site getting?

And thanks so much for taking the time to submit the image. I love visuals. Much easier to grasp the concepts.

Anoter question Ursa,

I noticed that beside the web2.0 properties, you have noted "article 1", "article 2", etc.

Are these articles on the web2.0 property, or articles submitted to article directories in order to promote the web2.0 property?

Kate!

I would say it takes about a month on average to create such a linkwheel.

Traffic comes from the articles (10 -13 articles) that are put on ten Web 2.0 websites, video sharing websites and organic searches.

How much traffic there is, depends on a niche, but once such a linkwheel has been created and all the properties start to rank higher and higher, it can go through the roof.

The articles are submitted both to Web 2.0 properties and article directories. I then make small linkwheels to these articles for them to rank high in the SERPS too. Usually there is a linkwheel created separately for the Web 2.0 properties and a linkwheel for the articles that are submitted to article directories.

Don't forget to submit articles to Scribd, it can rank high in Google fast these days.

Do you spin your articles? If so how many would you make per article?

Do you revisit the web 2.0 properites to add more contnet?

Which file format is best for Scribd?

Also thanks for contributing to this thread, you've definately helped me.

Depends on my strategy, I only spin article for 2 reasons, backlinks and multiple listing...

Adding more content to your web 2 properties will help to keep it fresh, and the best way is get topic related rss feeds...

I haven't spinned any articles yet, I use unique articles (10-13), but if I needed more content, I would definitely spin these articles and make even more Web 2.0 properties. You can definitely spin a few articles and use them, instead of totally unique ones.

I convert an article to pdf and upload it to Scribd.

I don't add new content to Web 2.0 properties, I just make a few backlinks from time to time too boost their rankings even more.

I use such a linkwheel for my main keyword. When targeting other keywords, I make smaller linkwheels.

Let's say I have a blog with 10 articles - I just make smaller linkwheels for these articles (usually it even doesn't have to be for all the articles, they are already ranking high on their own).

sure John, this is a part of article marketing too. The point is, you try to dominate the first pages of Google with all these Web 2.0 properties, articles that you submit to article directories, videos, etc. If you think one article can give you hundreds of backlinks, imagine how many you would get this way. You can easily dominate the niche.

Oh, there's plenty of article marketing is this strategy. I have submitted 19 articles to EZA for my new blog over the past two weeks.

Creating a link wheel allows you not only to help your blig/site in the SERPS, but also your articles published in the article directories (by linking to them from the "wheel").

And it's my estimation that done properly, I'd be able to write and submit fewer articles to directories, but have them be MUCH more effective.

I'm testing this theory out myself, of course.

Much Success,

KateD

Seriously? You got banned for using a link wheel? Can you share a litle more info on that, since I haven't heard about anyone getting "banned" from their network.

It's just a linking strategy, and when you are adding unique, valuable and relevant information about a niche, why in the world would anyone ban you?

Well Kate, I am using very few sites, such as hubpages, blogger.com, squidoo and EZA. With that combination, I used to do some social bookmarks too.

However, I heard that there are risks on doing link wheel, Anyone had heard of that?

Again, I'm not sure what "risk" you are referring to. If done properly, it's totally whitehat.

Well, yes, you could do that. That should really help an individual article rise in the search engines, and thus get more page views.

I was simply referring to linking to select articles from the different web2.0 sites.

Hi Ursa & Kate,

Great information as this will help a bunch of people out on this forum.

I was just wondering if all your properties are dofollow or not. See I am more interest in the backlink juice instead of trying to rank my web 2.0 sites. Just trying to get my focus hub in the top 3 positions.

I'm not a huge fan of Squidoo, so I'd rather not include them. What was your reasoning in not including them?

These are dofollow Web 2.0 websites (your link after the article is dofollow).

There are lots and lots of the websites you could also use. Just google Web 2.0 directory.

Kate,

with my recent research, I have found that not many squidoo lenses (and hub pages) rank on top spots in google. However, when researching different markets, scribd, slideshare, blogger, tumblr, etc. rank high these days for longtail keywords. I try to look for websites that are currently google's favorites . Next week there may be completely different Web 2.0 properties ranking high and I will use those.

This is just my observation and I'm sure many others still have great results with squidoo and hub pages.

Ursa,

What criteria do you use to determine which web2.0 sites to use?

And just one more question (I promise). Of the ten web2.0 sites that you use, which are the best 6 of them?

KateD

P.S. I really do appreciate the knowledge you are sharing.

Hi,

I have a question about do-follow and no-follow. Are we suppose to be concern about the fact that there is no link juice being pass around using no-follow web 2.0 properties?

Or does it still rank if we interlink our web 2.0 properties together?

The reason I ask is, I had tried building linkwheel and sometimes squidoo rank (an inbound link from hub which is a no-follow web 2.0) sometimes not. These linkwheel I make is of the same niche but different keywords.

So what do you guys think of it?

Thank in advance.

Hi Ursa,

Can you please explain the lower right hand of the diagram? What do you mean by social bookmarking block, social bookmark sites (200-300) linking to yoru site?
And what about profiles on PR sites in Google? Sites where you can create profiles, and just place links to your main site in the profile created for each?

Thanks for the info!

Sorry Ursa,

But I did not understand your first paragraph about linking after the article. Are you saying not to link from within the article but instead link from like a bio box or sentence after the article?

Thanks for your patience,

What she meant is you don't want your link to be "nofollow", so do it in your author bio box.

Are you talking about article directories? Most web 2.0 properties do not have bio boxes like ezinearticles.com and goarticles.com. Unless you are talking about a bio box on your profile page of the web 2.o properties.

Default Re: LINK WHEELS: Which 10 Web2.0 Properties Should I Use To Make An Effective Link Wheel??

UPDATE:

So the other night and went ahead and stayed up until about 4:30am creating my first link wheel to promote a new niche blog I started.

Here are the specifics:

1. I used seven web2.0 sites for my link wheel. They are:

- Squidoo
- Hubpages
- Blogger
- Weebly
- Blogsome
- Tumblr
- Vox

Now, I really didn't want to use Squidoo, but a few of the possible web2.0 sites I was going to use seemed overcomplicated to set up, so I stuck with mostly websites that I'm familiar with.

2. I used 7 original articles. Now, I know that a lot of people would have used just one original article and spun the remaining six from it.

And although I really wanted to do that (to save a TON of time), I didn't because of this thought. If I'm linking these spun articles to each other, wouldn't it be held against me (in terms of SEO), to have them so similar to one another?

So I toughed it out and wrote 7 original articles. But, I wrote these articles around the same keyword phrase.

3. I linked the 7 web2.0 sites in a big circle. Some people don't close the loop. so to speak, but I did.

4. On each web2.0 property, I linked back to my blog homepage, and then to an individual post inside of my blog. I did both these types of links as anchor text links within my articles. Very nice job of it if I do say so myself.

5. Another thing that I did was add three links on each web2.0 property back to 3 articles that I have on Ezinearticles.com. My thinking was that I was trying to give them additional backlinks using the link wheel (and therefore - hopefully - having them rise in the SERPS).

6. To keep things simple, I started a new email address of this link wheel. The next link wheel I created, I will use a new email again, even when promoting this same niche blog.

7. I also took the 7 web2.0 links and pinged them with pingler.com and pingomatic.com. i tried doing the same for the RSS feeds, but I was way too tired to find the RSS feeds for all 7 web2.0 sites.


Now, it's only been a few days since I completed the link wheel and have seen no effects from it. I also have done nothing to promote it...yet.

My goal is to submit articles to promote each property in the link wheel at least once.

So what do you guys think of my my first link wheel? Good or no?

What should I do to improve it?

I'd love to hear your opinions!

Hi Lonnie!

Put the links where it's possible, usually at the end of the article. If possible put the links in your profile page also.

Hi Kate!

Sorry that I haven't been active in this thread. I'm on vacation and the internet here can be a bit slow.

I don't see anything wrong with your linkwheel, but I have never used this kind of structure before, so maybe someone else can tell you more.

You don't say exactly how you use your anchor texts (just that you focus on one keyword), but what I always do is I never use the same anchor text for the web properties - my main keyword goes to the main site, other keywords I want to target, go to the next web property. That way, I target and try to rank for more keywords at the same time.

Just promote the properties with articles, like you said. If you haven't yet, submit RSS feeds to RSS directories. If you subscribe to any of the backlinking wsos, use those too.

Now you can focus on other keywords too.

Tip Re: LINK WHEELS: Which 10 Web2.0 Properties Should I Use To Make An Effective Link Wheel??

Awesome thread! I have just started using linkwheels in my backlinking strategy and have learned a lot from you, Ursa. You rock!

Here is a list of sites that I use in my wheels.

Zimbio - Interactive Magazine

There are numerous other sites that allow "parasite hosting" that I have not come across yet. These are just some of the sites that I have used in one form or another.

I also ping, social bookmark, and submit the rss feed of all of my entries just to give them some link juice. Big Mike's Bots and pingler are my weapons of choice to make these tasks much easier.

I also submit a different article to each site, either a seed article spun or a totally different one.

So far I have seen very good results and have gotten excellent mileage from my wheels. I am still refining my strategies though. Still learning.

Well, just my two cents added to the thread. Now give my my change...

Cal,

thanks for posting your strategies and urls for even more Web 2.0 properties. I'm glad someone else shared their success with linkwheels. It really is a great backlinking strategy.

I'm familiar with the above blog, that's where I got an idea about making small linkwheels by creating profiles on high pr websites.

Guys, the only difference between a normal mini-farm linking strategy and linkwheels seems to be the fact that they link to each other. If you did not bother linking them in a "wheel" would it have any less effect? Just curios if anyone has seen anything results wise or if this is bascially a concept people are assuming must speed things up?

No problem. Sharing success strategies is what this forum is all about. I have learned so much since I have been haunting this place that It is totally unreal.

Yeah, that marketers blog got my eyes opened to linwheels, too. Great read.

wow Ursa I like your link wheel strategy, very detailed thanks for sharing it. I guess using it as template is one thing but I dont like to replicate the model over & over as Google can simply modify the algorithm and if it effects one then it effects all.

Nice work though.

Wow, I was feeling good about myself and the 9 wheels I've set up until I read this thread. Now I can see at least one major mistake i've made.

First of, my contribution. I make wheels that consist of six spokes/sites. Those sites are
livejournal
easyjournal
blogger
blogsome
squidoo
vox

When the wheel has been completed and tested, I use pingomatic.

I've been using one article 6 times in each wheel which is (from reading this thread) a mistake.

Have to work on refining my system.

Yes, it really is just a model. I use completely different "link wheels" for every client I work with.

I vary the Web 2.0 websites, social bookmarking websites, RSS directories and high pr websites are always different too. I like to submit articles to more then one article directory and link to those articles from completely different high pr websites every time.

I have redesigned one of my websites and I now target completely different keywords. So far I have only made the left side of the total serp domination example and my website is already ranking on page 2. I know this is temporary but when the complete "link wheel" (I don't like to call it a link wheel, becasue it isn't) will be done, I will again have no trouble ranking on the first page for my chosen keywords. It's a powerful strategy and I had no trouble ranking high so far (for my or my clients websites).

Silly question but one I just want to be absolutely clear on;

You link all your articles and properties to the next by not using the same keywords

However...

With all the sites you use to link to your main/money site do you point everything to your homepage or do you point any of these web 2.0 properties and articles to any other pages on your main site depending on what keywords your targeting?

Also can you add a 2nd article to each property and start pointing to the other web 2.0 properties in the opposite direction using different keywords?

There's not set rules for any of this. What I generally do is point a keyword-focused web2.0 property to both the homepage and the post/page on my blog/site that targets the same keyword.

Does that make sense?

Yes thank you.

So with the links in your web 2.0 properties do you add say 3 links and point 2 to the home page and one to the article page.

I've also noticed that you can link some of the web 2.0 properties to each other via adding RSS feed widgets (e.g Blogger).

Hey, not sure if this thread is still goin, but I really like it. I've been trying some linkwheels and have actually made two, but I just did them as an actual wheel.

Ursa, your pic is awesome! I'm going to try something similar to that. Had a question though. The high PR sites pointing to goarticles... what are those? And are the 100 authority high PR sites kind of like Angela's backlinks?

I am supporter to linkwheel for seo purposes. The problems I don't like to create myself as you all knew it is too time consuming and a lot of repetitive works involve.

Luckily I found out there are warrior members who are offering linkwheel building service. Why not you do a search and take a look at those who offer the service.

I am sure you can get a good bargain and let those expert to build the linkwheel for you.

Cheer,

Steve

I have followed this thread with great interest with lots of valuable information provided. I have a question with respect to link building, and that is the value or importance, if any, of pinging backlinks to get them indexed. It seems like I have done a lot of back linking through various sources but the links don't seem to show up or appear to be indexed even after a lengthy amount of time. Does anyone use pinging with link wheels and if so, what tool do you find most effective?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
